A Photo Essay-type Blog! My Milk Toof!!! CUTE.

I will not claim to have been the first to discover this. I'm just glad I did. But before we go and drown in the cuteness of the contents of the blog in question, let me insert some photography-related nonsense...

Photo Essays. The term itself defines it. Basically an essay expressed with photos instead of words. A picture, after all, is worth a thousand words. Why not combine several thousand?

Ok. The writer in me is meandering again.

We were once assigned to create a photo essay for the photoclub back in high school. While my subject and storyline was a little more morbid than most (which, thinking back, probably alarmed a teacher or two), the objective was to tell a story with several photos. And that is what I did. Perhaps its time for me to do that once more. Why not?

But before we launch ourselves yet again into an ultimately unfinished personal project, lets get down to the blog that made this entry possible...

I present My Milk Toof!!

Cuteness overload. :) Check it out.

Bending Light 2: Spectralight Diffuser

It seems that this is one of those years that I'm going to fulfill some of my own wishes. :) First personal purchase off the wishlist was the Spirit pop-up flash diffuser. Works well within its limits I'd say. But for more creative lighting, and portable light bending, I had to go and get the Spectralight flash diffuser.

This was on the top of my wishlist. Primarily because it offers me a new way to use my hotshoe flash, within a respectable I-wouldn't-feel-guilty-for-purchasing-it-myself budget. :) tonight was the first night of use at a friend's birthday celebration. Supposedly, according to the site, this will allow the user a more versatile lighting experience, great for covering events and what not. :) Expect to see more of it in the coming flash-friendly events.

Pictures to be posted soon... :)


And here they are...
